741 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) Where to begin?  Well, that’s actually pretty simple. The Rangers have a ton of holes, they have a dearth of skill and they are soft. OK, fine. But none of that matters if the guy in the net doesn’t stop the puck. They can fix some of their…

634 It’s Go Time! … Blue Jackets at Rangers

Game 33. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The reunion of the former Rangers and former Blue Jackets is the story line, but tonight’s game is really about the Rangers’ need for a victory, and having to get it with a depleted lineup. Big, tough 2010 first-round draft pick Dylan McIlrath…

252 Rangers-Predators in review; Live Chat at noon

Another reminder: We will have a Live Chat today at noon. On the ledge. Be there. Or else. Should be entertaining. Thoughts: 1) They are boring. They are soft. They are mistake prone. And they are losing players almost every night. They don’t defend very well, and they can’t score.…

399 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Hey, for crying out loud, you can’t expect them to score more than one against Philipp Grubauer. Did I spell that correctly? Too lazy to care. But that’s kinda the point. 2) I mentioned it a little while back, during that five-game road trip, and I wasn’t alone…

560 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 31. Capitals at Rangers. The Rangers play the second of a franchise-record nine-game homestand. They got their first Bettman Bonus Point for losing Saturday against the Devils. They have alternated wins and losses for eight straight games and have not been more than a game over .500 this…

305 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Marc Staal. Boy, that sure as hell doesn’t look good for him, getting hit on the button like that by Reid Boucher’s shoulder or upper arm to the chin and reacting as if he knew right away that something was wrong, and then slamming his helmet on his…

498 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

Game 30. Devils at Rangers. The Rangers begin a franchise-record nine-game homestand with back-to-backs against the Devils and Washington. They will play just 23 of their final 52 games on the road, two of those at Yankee Stadium. The Rangers are 0-2 vs. the Devils this season. Despite that,…

183 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist. Remember that goalie controversy? And by the way, this talk about how he’s earning that new contract now … well, that new contract starts next season and I think he gets the signing bonus July 1. So he’s just getting by with the old contract right…

504 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Baby Buffaloes

Game 29. Rangers at Baby Buffaloes. Ya boys, through more than one-third of the season, sit at .500 (not NHL .500, but actual .500) with no Bettman Bonus Points for losing and zero participation in Breakaway Contests After The Hockey Game Ends (BCATHGE). Can they be the first NHL…

318 My story on the Henrik Lundqvist re-signing

From The Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — Funny, but just a few days earlier people were wondering what, exactly, the Rangers felt about their franchise player, Henrik Lundqvist, when his backup, Cam Talbot, played two games in a row. Turns out the Rangers feel just the…
